      Augustine thanks God for the good gifts of his body, his life, and his senses, gifts that reflect God's perfect ordering of all things. Analysis Chapter 6 introduces Augustine's infancy, although he has little to report about it, because he cannot remember it. In this respect, Ambrose contrasts Faustus in Book 5, who has nothing beyond linguistic polish and a little personal charm to offer Augustine. Ambrose has been strongly influenced by the Neo-Platonists, and he applies a Platonistic, spiritual interpretation to the Christian texts he expounds for his .

      Augustine now conceived of the quest of his life as a quest for a firm and unshakable enjoyment of the true God. This will be utterly determinative in his thinking about everything, especially in his great final battles with Pelagianism near the end of his life forty years from this time. The Confessions of St. Augustine and the soul conversion. By telling the history of the errors when his youth and his conversion, St. Augustine has described that a soul away from God by the fury of the passions. This story is for Christians of all ages, the idea came from . Augustine recounts the beliefs he held at this time in his life (which he describes as his "evil and wicked youth"). The fact that Christians believed that God was not changeable, was the source of all things, was wholly benevolent, and had power over everything, caused Augustine great intellectual difficulty.

      Book VI: a refutation of the assertion that the pagan gods are to be worshipped for eternal life (rather than temporal benefits). Augustine claimed that even the esteemed pagan theologist Varro held the gods in contempt. Book VII: a demonstration that eternal life is not granted by Janus, Jupiter, Saturn, and other select : Augustine of Hippo. Montgomery, W. St. Augustine, aspects of his life and thought. London; New York [etc: Hodder and Stoughton, Augustine's account of his sexual sins is one of the most famous features of the Confessions, and that account begins here in Book 2, as Augustine becomes a teenager. Augustine's attitude toward his sexual urges is always deeply problematic, and a reluctance to give up sex is one of the last, painful obstacles to his full conversion.
